In the Wake of Losing Caron Butler, the Dallas Mavericks Land ...
Carmelo Anthony Sasha Pavlovic.
The former first-round draft pick of the Utah Jazz is far from the answer for the reeling Dallas Mavericks. He'll likely just get a shot via a 10-day contract after the team last week cut role player Steve Novak.
Word today is that if the New Jersey Nets acquire Anthony and send Devin Harris to Denver, the Mavs might be interested in eventually bringing the point guard back to Dallas.
Yeah, but ...
While going 2-5 without Dirk Nowitzki, when does it become time to actually try and replace Butler? Not long ago the Mavs were the best team in basketball. These days they can't beat anybody not named Cleveland.
At this rate they can't wait until the February 24 trading deadline to snag Stephen Jackson or Andre Iguodala or Kevin Martin or ... somebody.
